Retinol alternative for sensitive skin!
Retinol alternative for sensitive skin!
Did you know bakuchiol is found in the seeds and leaves of a Babchi plant? PRODUCT: Bakuchiol Retinol Alternative Smoothing Serum is a natural anti-aging serum that acts similarly to a retinol. It’s meant to gently fight signs of aging, improve skins texture and hyperpigmentation. The highlighted ingredients are: 💜Bakuchiol- helps with skin texture and brightness, reduces fine lines and wrinkles, and controls acne. 💜Polyhydroxy Acids- (aka PHAs) are chemical exfoliants and help remove dead skin and also help other ingredients penetrate deeper into the skin 💜Tremella Mushroom- nourishes skin, improves elasticity, slows skin aging process, and brightens complexion. MY THOUGHTS: This has been my first experience with Bakuchiol and I’m loving it! I think this is a gentle alternative for retinol, especially for those with sensitive skin. I’ve noticed my skin looks brighter and smoother. I specifically use this serum when my skin is acting up and it does a great job at controlling my blemishes. The texture feels extremely light but a little sticky (due to the Tremella Mushroom) which I don’t mind because the application of other products takes the stickiness away. I definitely recommend this to anyone who is looking for a retinol alternative! SIDE NOTE: 🌱🐰♻️ This product is vegan, cruelty-free, and comes in recyclable packaging

Did you know there are over 200 species of raspberries? PRODUCT: @cocokind Raspberry Vinegar Toner is designed for oily and/or acne prone skin. This toner is meant to help balance your skin’s pH, reduce excess oil, and promote a clear complexion. ✨Raspberry vinegar: packed with acetic acid (which has disinfecting properties), raspberry vinegar helps balance excess oil and encourages circulation. MY THOUGHTS: This is one of my absolute fav toners! I bring this toner out to use when my skin is acting up and it works wonders (I’m on my second bottle)! It controls my blemishes so well and soothes any irritation or redness I might be experiencing. It feels like water when applied but has a strong vinegar scent to it that lingers on for a while. With that being said, I’ve noticed amazing results from this toner and recommend it to anyone with acne prone skin! SIDE NOTE: 🌱This product is vegan

Did you know aloe vera contains approximately 98% water? @firstaidbeauty Pure Skin Face Cleanser is a fragrance-free, creamy cleanser that is targeted to benefit dry, normal and combination skin.

It soothes and moisturizes skin, and is anti-inflammatory. ✨Glycerin: a natural humectant that helps hydrate skin, helps to shield skin from environmental stressors and improves skins resiliency. MY THOUGHTS: I got this cleanser from a set I ordered and I was pleasantly surprised by how well it cleansed my skin. It has a lightweight, creamy texture that feels so soothing on the skin and really cleanses thoroughly. It doesn’t strip my skin or leave it feeling tight. It doesn’t leave any sort of residue on my skin and washes off easily. This has quickly become one of my fav cleansers, as it works so well for my sensitive and dry skin. I definitely recommend it!

MY THOUGHTS: This was one of the products I tried in 2020 and really enjoyed! I have extremely dry and dull skin at times and this mask is my go-to during those times. It has a thick creamy texture that feels very soothing once applied. I keep it on for about 30min-1hr and it really helps hydrate my skin. It can also be left overnight for extra hydration. I did get some redness on my skin the first time I tried this product but I haven’t had issues since.

CBD as a skincare ingredient?!
CBD as a skincare ingredient?!
Cannabidiol, commonly known as CBD, is a naturally-occurring chemical compound found in cannabis plants. It's one of the two primary active ingredients of cannabis, the other one being THC (tetrahydrocannabinol). Unlike THC, pure CBD is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid, meaning it doesn't make you feel high. With healing properties, "cannabidiol offers some serious antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits which can be beneficial in treating skin concerns like inflammation, dryness and free radical damage," says Ildi Pekar, NYC-based aesthetician. Research shows that CBD has the potential to decrease excess sebum (oil) production, possibly due to its balancing effect on the flow of skin’s oil. I have extremely sensitive and acne prone skin and using CBD products have really helped “calm down”. What I mean by that is my skin feels less puffy and less irritated. I have some redness on my face at times and CBD products really help soothe and take away the redness. My fav cbd product is HERBIVORE - Emerald CBD + Adaptogens Deep Moisture Glow Oil It’s the perfect lightweight oil that does a really good job at hydrating my skin and calming it. ✨I found all of my sources from the Internet!

Chlorophyll mask will change your life!

Did you know Spirulina was originally classified as a plant but has since been reclassified as bacteria? PRODUCT: @cocokinds Chlorophyll Mask claims to clarify, soothe, and brighten the look of dull skin. It is meant to detoxify skin and visibly reduce puffiness. It comes in powder form and can be mixed with water, toners, or essences. The 2 key ingredients are: 🌱spirulina powder - Spirulina is a type of bacteria called cyanobacterium, which is often referred to as blue-green algae. It detoxifies skin by promoting cell turnover. 🌱chlorella powder - Chlorella is a green algae plant grown in fresh water as opposed to sea water. It delivers oxygen to skin cells while also protecting against oxidative stress. MY THOUGHTS: Let me start by saying, I literally feel like this mask was made for my skin. It is the most gentle detoxifying mask I’ve ever used. I noticed instant results with my skins texture and overall radiance. It helps my skin stay soft for days and it’s so affordable...$19 for 2 oz. I mix 2 scoops of the powder (it comes with a little spatula) with rosewater and apply to it for 15 min or until it dries. I find the scent so disgusting but the results make up for it🙃 definitely recommend!10/10 SIDE NOTE: 🌱This product is vegan ➡️ Swipe for texture
